* The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS)* we believe that

**mathematics is a science without boundaries**, and that it is our role to act as a catalyst for scientific discovery. We encourage initiatives that open lines of communication between our member institutions and the best science from all around the world. The links in the left margin describe the framework within which we currently classify proposals.
